Bushcraft ft. ALEC STEELE – Fire Lighting, Steak, Axe work – Epic Day at...

I head to the Bushcraft Camp in the Forest for a day of Fire Lighting Skills with Alec Steele, the incredible Blacksmith Youtuber! Subscribe to Alec's Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/alectheblacksmith The aim of the day was to try and teach Alec to light a fire using a number of different fire lighting techniques. Ranging from the traditional flint & steel fire, to making feather sticks as well as using a tinder fungus and dried grass. To begin with, we needed to process the wood using Alec's forged Axe and a folding bow saw. Alec split the fire wood with his hatchet and he further processed it down into kindling using the knife that he had helped me forge in a previous video. Once Alec got the fire going with feather sticks and a ferro rod, we cooked up some fresh steak on the grill. Closely followed by sausages! It was then time to teach Alec how to light a fire with flint & steel, a cramp ball fungus and the classic birch bark fire using bark from the silver birch tree (betula pendula) which has a high resin content. It was great to get Alec out into the woods for a day of Bushcraft and Fire at the Camp!

Cooking at The Bushcraft Camp – Axe, Fire, Shelter, Wilderness Survival Tips & Grilled...

I head to The Bushcraft Camp to do some camp fire cooking. I use my saw, axe and knife to process fire wood and carve some small plates. In this video I also give a few survival tips as well as cook some kebabs on the grill and chill with a beer. In Bushcraft Camp Update 14 Dad built a fire pit made from an old car wheel. We also dug out a tunnel to make better air flow into the camp itself. The fire now burns much more efficiently and we more or less a smoke free fire. I still use the pot hanger and cooking crane to boil up coffee. Thanks for joining me on this adventure, and I will see you in the next one! - Mike Watch me build my whole Camp in One Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcihSMpsDn0&t=117s Follow me on Instagram for Behind the Scenes Pics: https://www.instagram.com/taoutdoorofficial/ My Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/totallyawesomeoutdoors If you wish to send me stuff: Mike Pullen PO Box 7466 HOOK RG27 7NA Subscribe to our other Fishing YouTube Channel "TAFishing" here: https://www.youtube.com/tafishing Music: http://www.epidemicsound.com/

Cabin Life: Snow at the Off Grid Pallet Wood Cabin – Unboxing Mail

We wanted to experience Cabin Life in the Snow. So we head to the Off Grid Pallet Wood Cabin in Winter, which had a recent snow storm with blizzard and ice rain that came in from Siberia. We get the woodstove going, make some tea and light the candles for some hygge! We open up some subscriber mail sent from you guys, thank you so much to those who sent us stuff. This Off Grid Tiny Home was built using recycled Pallet Wood. It has been a great wilderness project which I have been doing with my Dad. It's only small, and can sleep one person. It has a woodstove, raised bed, folding table, book case, sink and wash area, front porch and small log store. It may not look like a Log Cabin, but for us it was the building part that meant the most. We used a mixture of hand tools and power tools, but our main aim was to try and save money and build the cabin for free. Thanks for joining us on this winter snow day!

Building an Off Grid Cabin using Free Pallet Wood: A Wilderness Project

We built this small off grid log cabin using recycled pallet wood that we collected for free. The aim of the diy project was to try and save money by building a cabin in the forest on the cheap. Living off grid is something we have always admired, being able to forage and gather food from the land, much like the primitive hunter-gatherer did. This off the grid cabin, although small, is an ideal one-man bug out camp in a survival situation. Slowly, we are turning this off grid cabin in the forest into a wilderness homestead. So far, this tiny hobbit home has no electricity or solar power, but it does have a window, roof, front porch, folding table, raised bed, chair, bench, shelves, bookcase and a woodstove to keep the cabin warm during the cold winter months. To build the pallet wood cabin we have used a mixture of hand tools and power tools. We filmed and documented the building of this log cabin in a playlist on our channel called "The Off Grid Pallet Wood Cabin" which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxnadpeGdTxDMYqxhMnVMPHzgIuUOKB54 We started the cabin build by breaking the pallets down into useable pieces of timber. We then cleared a site in the forest to build the foundations of the cabin using larger pallets. The second stage of the build was the side walls, and then the roof, which we used a piece of recycled tin from an old barn. We then fitted a small window from a garden shed, and started to work on building the front porch. Once the main structure of the cabin was complete, we focused on making rustic pallet wood furniture for the inside of the small house. We bolted together a raised bed, and made a small chair and foldaway table to save space inside. We then needed to heat the cabin, for this we opted for the G Stove Heat View which has a stove pipe oven attachment so that we can bake food in it, plus a water container to boil water for fresh coffee and tea. In many of the episodes we cooked food in cast iron frying pans on the woodstove. In the warmer months we cooked on an open camp fire using a cast iron grill on a Bushcraft style tripod which we lashed together. We have cooked fresh fish, pie, bacon, eggs, soup and much more on the woodstove. Hopefully, we can use this former Bushcraft Camp as an area to practice developing our wilderness survival skills, learning primitive technology and how to forage for wild edibles and catch and cook our food. At the end of the day, this project was more about a father and son spending time in the outdoors working on free diy projects and learning how to become self reliant and save money for a happier lifestyle. We hope you enjoy the adventure!

3 Day Solo Winter Snow Camp – Bushcraft, Canvas Tent, Woodstove, Bowdrill

On this adventure I head out for a solo winter camping trip in the snow. I setup the small canvas tent and woodstove, make a bushcraft fire reflector and make this camp my home for 3 days. On the second day a snow storm arrived from the east, bringing with it ice rain and blizzard like conditions. I cook up food on the woodstove and campfire to keep me warm. I also attempt a primitive bowdrill in a snowstorm.

Building a Thatch Roof House with Hand Tools: Bushcraft Saxon Shelter (PART 12)

We're in the woods building a bushcraft saxon house using hand tools. In part 12 we use an auger and hand drill to build the door, we then use long straw or combed straw to cap the ridge on the top of the thatch roof of the saxon shelter. The combed straw is called "triticale" and is a mix of wheat and rye. The reason we used it to build the top of the roof is because it is much more pliable and easy to bend then water reed. It also has the disease resistance of wheat and the hardiness of rye, which makes it last longer on the roof. To finish off the roof, I used a barrel eye scotch auger and some hand carved wood pegs to fix some cross supports to the top of the thatch roof. This will help pin down the ash liggers (battens) and keep the thatch pinned down during heavy rain and wind. We finish the clay walls inside, using the wattle and daub technique. The Saxon House is now pretty much finished. We have tried to keep it as historically correct as we could. But for things such as the door, we used recycled pallet wood and iron hinges. The reason we did this is because we wanted the door to last and not rot away. It has been an incredible experience building with hand tools. Working with nature to create an ancient home of our ancestors. The Anglo Saxons were very resourceful and would have used whatever natural materials they could find to build their bushcraft shelters and wood houses.

Dartmoor in the Rain | Wild Camping on Dartmoor in Extreme Conditions | OEX...

I Took my wife on her first proper Wild Camp in Dartmoor National park in terrible weather conditions. We struggled to hike on high ground so we stayed low, but even so the Wind and Rain made it tough going. My wife stayed positive throughout and we had a great time together even dealing with a mini flash flood that made us have to move the location of our OEX Husky III tent didn't dampen our spirits. we ate British Army rations and enjoyed the beautiful scenery Dartmoor has to offer. We can't wait to return.
